Art of noise: CD covers as watercolours – in pictures

The Cee Deez collection of tiny watercolours (each 15cm by 15cm) was made during lockdown, when 27-year-old artist Rosie McGinn moved back from London to her family’s Maidstone home. There, she rediscovered Ronan by Ronan Keating, the first CD she ever bought, in 2000. During a row, her sister scrawled “I hate you” on the cover image. After reconciliation she had added “I love you” to the other side. “I did the first painting [of Ronan] for her,” says McGinn, “and it triggered the series, looking through CDs that made me feel close to childhood.”
